Enter the sherry menu challenge

Reckon you could challenge competition judge Heston Blumenthal's sherry candyfloss with elderflower mousse and match it with a sherry? Entrants in this year's sherry Sous Chef/Wine Waiter Competition have to create a three-course menu centred around sherry and choose a different sherry to complement each dish.

Ten teams will be chosen to battle it out in a grand final to be staged at this year's Restaurant Show on 20 September.

The prize is £1,000 each plus a gastronomic tour of Andalusia, and the winning pair will take part in an international final in Jerez, the heart of Spain's sherry region, next January. Heading the judges at the final will be Spain's culinary superstar, Ferran Adri…. Closing date for UK entries is 20 August. Contact matt_arrowsmith@jcpr.com, or call 020 7208 5543/7213.
